If ya like movies with NO guns/warfare/futuristic/violent/smutty content... and you are over 40, you will LOVE 'Saving Mr Banks'!
I loved it, and Stew did too. Which surprised me as it really was an almost 'chick flick'.
I'm not surprised though, I have yet to see a movie with Tom Hanks that is a flop! And his leading lady in this movie, Emma Thompson, was awesome too.
So.... it gets a 10/10 from me.
I am going to buy the DVD just as soon as it comes out ... for sure.
It will get added to my 'Tom Hanks' movie collection. *smiles*
So, this is the first weigh in, this year, that 'counts'. My new starting weight for THIS YEAR will be written down and worked on.
No numbers. Just a starting point... and from then on every Saturday I will report the -/+, though I am hoping there will be mostly -'s.
Quite excited really. It was around this time last year I embarked on my ONWARD FOR LIFE PLAN, and I've learnt a lot. I can't binge. I can't pretend the scales are invisible. I can't 'do' sweets. (f*#k they make me feel ill!).
But I can follow a sensible diet with a few treats included, and lose weight.
So. That's what I am doing again.
Grocery shopping sometime today. Washing. General housework. All the usual shit.
I stood on the scales, and if they are to be believed, I lost 6.1 kilos since last Saturday. I'm not even going to record that cos I know a lot of it will have been fluid.
Today's weight has been recorded... and now I get back into it. Feeling good!
ABOVE: I have decided to start on Rena's Birthday present. Her birthday is 22nd March, so plenty of time. I'm going to use that adorable picture above in some way.
Well... grocery shopping has been deferred till tomorrow. Nice.
I'm sewing and Stew is about to do some lawn mowing...well, after he's watched one of the Rugby 9 games that is.
Kids are happily entertained and Bex is crocheting. We are all happy.
Just like the Waltons? Maybe! lol
I lay in the sun late this afternoon, AND had a soak in the spa, which was pure bliss. It's at 30 degrees C... so cool but not freezing. So really nice.
Now? Gunna do a bit more sewing... then have dinner. Stew's cooking tonight. Cottage Pie using the meat stew from last night. Should be yum.
Dinner WAS lovely, but 2 hours later and I've got dreadful heartburn. NOT acid reflux YET. Fingers crossed it doesn't develop into that. I cannot think why I have heartburn? Beef/mince stew with potato on top for dinner? And a handful of crackers/cheese and tomato relish for lunch. That is all I've had. *grrrrr*
End of Day: well a really hot and humid day today, so glad we can use the spa to cool down. I got a bit accomplished on the little Ballerina tonight. Will show ya tomorrow.
